Praise and Prayer Request for the Week of 22nd-28th May
Your Help Comes From Where!
I lift my eyes toward the mountains. Where will my help come from?  My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.  He will not allow your foot to slip; your Protector will not slumber. (Psalm 121: 1-3)

Are you in need of help?  Where do you go for help?  Are there neighbors, good friends, family members you trust in times of needs?  Do you relay on your abilities, strength, financial capabilities or personal skills?  When the Psalmist lifted up his eyes and ask “where will my help come from? He answered, “My help come from the Lord.” His help did not come from other people.  It did not come from his ability; it did not come his procession nor from the hills.  He answered, “My help comes from the Lord.”  His help and our help should come from the Lord, the maker of the hills.  The God who created our family members, neighbors and friends, our abilities, strength and finances.  Our God is and a mighty creator over all the difficulties in life, and He never sleep nor slumber.  We can trust and completely depend on Him in the time of need. Other resource may fail us.  They may not be able or they may reject our plea for help 10Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be afraid, for I am your God.  I will strengthen you; I will help you; I will hold on to you with My righteous right hand.” (Isaiah 41:10)
